“A Walk on the Wild Side,” a collection of wildlife and landscape photographs by Larry Calof of Atherton, is featured this March at the Portola Art Gallery. The exhibit includes images printed on aluminum, as well as pieces printed on traditional archival paper.

After a successful 30-year career in corporate and securities law, Larry rediscovered his passion for photography. He explains: “I love using natural light and high-quality digital equipment to capture wildlife and landscape images in distinct manners that illuminate their unique characteristics.

Larry has exhibited and received awards at various local juried art shows, including Filoli, Pacific Art League, and the California Land Trust Gallery. He was the grand prize winner in Cowboys & Indians magazine’s national photography contest in 2006, and his images have been published in the magazine in many of the following years, including the 2015 photo contest.

A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, March 12, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. The Portola Art Gallery is located at the Allied Arts Guild, 75 Arbor Road, Menlo Park.
